Your visit to Victoria Falls will be made memorable by seeing and experiencing the actual Victoria Falls Activities. Nothing can compare to witnessing the water’s overwhelming force propel down the rocks. While also being showered by the spray of one of nature’s most spectacular creations.
What if, though we told you that wasn’t all? Aside from the falls, the region is renowned as the heart of African Adventure. It’s bursting with various adventure activities that’ll give your entire Victoria Falls Trip the perfect finishing touch.
A couple of Victoria Falls Activities include White water Rafting and River Boarding. We’ve made a thoroughly comprehensive guide for the two activities. Let’s check it out.
Stick to our following comprehensive guide, and you’ll ultimately be able to choose your preferred Victoria Falls Activity.
An inflatable raft is used in the outdoor recreation activity of white water rafting to travel through a river and its flowing waves. It’s usually performed in white water, thus the name. Depending on your river, you can also serve it in varying levels of choppy water.
The most recent development in adrenaline sports is River Boarding. It’s quite exciting and a must-add to the list of Victoria Falls Activities.
It’s a dream come true for adrenaline junkies, but river boarding at Victoria Falls is not for the faint of heart or those who shy away from adventure. It was first developed as a rescue method, and it is now Victoria Falls’ newest extreme sport. River Boarding is a three-dimensional white water activity, similar to rafting but without the raft.
While white water rafting, be prepared to navigate the gorge on foot. Expect to get wet in the mighty Zambezi River and have an unforgettable experience.
All you have to do to ride down the rapids in an oar boat is hold on. Paddle boats give you and the guide the option to travel ahead or backward as you go.
On the other hand, in a typical River Boarding activity, you’ll start your day with a hotel pickup from Victoria Falls.
Then, armed with an enormous bodyboard, a wetsuit, and flippers, you’ll navigate the Middle Zambezi River rapids and surf the waves.
The Zambezi River is closed between March and June since it is in the middle of its flood season.
The high water season is from Early January to July. And, River boarding can’t be done from March to May.
Similar to white water rafting, the low water season (August to early January) is also the best time to go River boarding in Victoria Falls.
In white water rafting, injuries, and severe harm are extremely rare. And you’ve gotta give a priority to safety. And, exercise caution.
Similar to white water rafting, river boarding also places a high priority on safety.
Furthermore, highly qualified, trained, and experienced guides will be alongside us at all moments.
Rafting in Victoria Falls can be done from both the Zimbabwean and Zambian banks of the Zambezi River. Whichever side you decide to approach is entirely up to you. The experience will be the same. And the operators on both sides are highly skilled.
Zambia and Zimbabwe both provide river boarding. The main distinction between the two sides is that in Zambia you may use a cable car out of the Batoka Gorge, whereas in Zimbabwe you’ve gotta hike.
You’ll spend most of the day outside while white water rafting, so prepare your Victoria Falls Packing List accordingly. And bring plenty of sunscreens (SPF 30 or higher).
Bring any necessary prescription medications. As well as the National Park fees (River usage fee), preferably in cash. Take dry clothing with you so you may change after the activity.
While river boarding, it is advised that you know how to swim. Or at the very least have the courage to enter the water.
A national park charge (for the use of the river) is mandatory and will be collected in person. Tipping is optional. But, you can do it if you have a positive experience.
Taking part in an activity like White Water Rafting will be a great choice. Rapids with names like The Terminator, The Washing Machine, Judgement Day, Stairway to Heaven, Oblivion, etc. provide a glimpse of what to expect during the Victoria Falls Tour.
And, while river boarding, you’ll exit the raft and engage in outdoor activities including whirlpool rides, river surfing, and splashing. If you like adventure, Victoria Falls River Boarding is a great activity.
One thing is undeniable though, whatever Victoria Falls Activity you choose, you’re guaranteed to have a blast and enjoy an adrenaline-filled experience.
